In honor of La Fête de la Musique , this post is dedicated to my favorite French band of all time: Tryo. I saw them live in Bordeaux in 2006 during their 10 year anniversary tour and it is a concert I will never forget. My favorite album is "Grain de Sable" but they are all good. Download a few songs to your ipod and check 'em out. They have such a unique sound.

Tryo is a French language 'unplugged' reggae acoustic band, popular in Europe and in Quebec, with three French guitarists, a percussionist, and a producer: Guizmo, Christophe Mali, Manu Eveno, Daniel "Danielito" Bravo and Bibou. They are popular in France partly due to their politically charged lyrics, whilst also showing a fun side with a range of humorous songs, especially in live performances.They take a left wing stance, criticising French politicians and world leaders alike. They have sold 900,000 albums. They had their 10 year anniversary in 2006, followed by a nationwide tour. Tryo have four studio albums, a double CD live album and two live DVDs.
